A 45-year-old man fell on the track at Sultanpur metro station here on Sunday and sustained serious injuries.

Jeevant Negi (45), a resident of Aaya Nagar, was waiting for a train along with his brother-in-law Kundan Singh (42) at Sultanpur metro station around 6 p.m. when he lost balance and fell on the track. The train approaching the station applied emergency brakes, but he sustained serious head injuries due to the fall.

Jeevant has been admitted to AIIMS trauma centre and said to be critical.

Kundan purportedly told the police that Jeevant, a clerk, felt giddy and fell on the track.
